Weyenberg Library Newsletter

Are you participating in the 2018 Adult Reading Challenge? It’s easy, and reading is a reward in itself, but we will also reward you with more books! Our staff has put together a list of 27 Fiction titles, and 27 Non-Fiction titles, all of which will encourage you to read outside of your box, whatever box that may be. The list is so diverse, I don’t even know which titles to select as illustrations. Visit the Reference Desk for details and a complete list.

And while you’re exploring new literature, how about taking a course? All public libraries in the Monarch Library System now offer Gale Courses, instructor-led six-week courses (12 lessons) , available online at no charge. Choose from more than 360 courses. Learn Spanish, American Sign Language, or Japanese. How about drawing, music, or game development? Maybe you need to tackle the latest version of Excel, Access, or Oracle? If you’re in health care or education, these courses may even satisfy your professional development requirements. Log onto www.flwlib.org. You will find Gale Courses under the digital services heading of the eServices tab. Individual courses may also be found through the online catalog. And did I mention they’re all FREE?

What would you like to see at your Frank L. Weyenberg Library? Stop in to see me, call 262-242-2593, ext. 331, or email me at . I’d love to hear your ideas.

P.S. Please share this newsletter with others in the community.
